2 CIVIL ENGINEERING EDUCATION AT THE UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA AND THE UNIVERSITY OF JUBA, SOUTHERN SUDAN Abstract Civil engineering is a professional engineering discipline that encompasses design, construction and maintenance of infrastructure. It is the oldest engineering disciplines after military engineering. Unlike the other disciplines, it is both an art and science that could be traced back to the early civilization (4000 to 2000 BC) in Ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia. And it is a science that makes man and nature live in harmony. It has moved through a number of technological interfaces to reach its current stage. To maintain its integrity, it is imperative that the curricula be regularly revised to meet the ever-demanding economical, social and environmental needs of the society. In most universities, civil engineering under graduate program is four years. University of Juba has five years undergraduate program. The College of Engineering at the University of Florida has 11 academic departments while the College of Engineering at the University of Juba has 5 different departments. These two institutions have different undergraduate requirements both in terms of credit hours and number of semesters. The curriculum leading to the Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering degree at the University of Florida consists of 131 credit hours, while University of Juba consists of 211 credit hours. The University of Florida allows 52 general education credits while University of Juba provides 133. In terms of core civil engineering credits, the University of Florida requires 79 engineering-based credits, while University of Juba requires a minimum of 78 engineering-based credits. The objective of this paper is to compare the current undergraduate civil engineering curriculum in these two institutions. The results of this study present that the civil engineering curriculum meets the educational requirements of both institutions, however, admission requirements, student grading systems and types of courses are different for both. Introduction The University of Florida (UF) is located in Gainesville, Florida and was founded in 1853, making it the oldest university in the state. UF currently offers more than 52 undergraduate programs in a broad variety of instructional fields 1. The Department of Civil Engineering at UF was established in 1910 and later merged with the Department of Coastal and Oceanographic Engineering in 1999 to become the Department of Civil and Coastal Engineering 2. The civil engineering undergraduate program at UF is considered as one of the top programs in the United States of America. Drops Two drops are allowed if you have completed less than 60 credits at UF. Free drop if your number of credits does not drop below 12 and if filed by the seventh week of the semester 3. Page

3 Summer Attendance If students complete two summer semesters of co-op, internship or other engineering-related work they can petition to have the nine hour summer attendance requirement waived 3. Honors The term Cum Laude is used for the students with under graduate grade point average (GPA) of 3.3. The term Magna Cum Laude is used for those with GPA of 3.5. The term Summa Cum Laude is designated for those students with GPA of Admission Requirements Admission at UF is based on the student s high school GPA, Scholastic Aptitude Test 1 (SAT 1) and the American Collegiate Test (ACT). International students are required to have a high school degree in an English speaking country or provide TOEFL results 4. The minimum requirements for qualification into the program are 5 : 1. Graduation from a regionally accredited or state-approved secondary school or the equivalent General Education Degree (G.E.D.). 2. Fifteen academic units, including 4 years of English, 3 years of math, 3 years of natural sciences (two with laboratories), 3 years of social sciences, and 2 sequential years of a foreign language. 3. A cumulative C average in the academic core, as computed by the university, at all institutions attended high school and college. 4. A total score of at least 1330 on the SAT (minimum 440 on either verbal or quantitative), or a composite ACT score of 19 with a minimum of 17 on the English subsection, 19 on the math, and 18 on the reading. Where a student is coming from a Non-Accredited school or Home Schooling, they must provide in addition to a transcript and the new SAT or ACT with writing results required of other applicants, results from the SAT II examinations in mathematics (Level II-C), foreign language, science and social science. For admission decision purposes, the university will use the result of the new SAT writing sub score if the applicant has no dual-enrollment or virtual school English composition coursework, since the SAT II in writing is no longer offered. Applicants who present G.E.D. scores must also present secondary school records and standardized test scores 5. Admission at UJ is based on the student s high school certificate. The main requirements are passing grades in English, Arabic, Religious studies and Elementary Mathematics. Furthermore, College of Engineering requires a passing grade on Physics, Chemistry and any other Science subject. The medium of instruction at UJ in English, however, students who completed their Sudan certificate in Arabic are also admitted to the college 6. Undergraduate Civil Engineering Programs at both Institutions The civil engineering program at UJ is a five-year program based on two 19-week semesters with the interval of eight weeks per year. The student must take classes based on predetermined course plans. In the final year of the program, students must select one Page

4 technical elective course per semester. The program consists of ten semesters, with an average of seven courses per semester 6. The department decides the number of courses that each student must take during each semester. A student s normal course load in each semester is between 16 and 26 credit hours. The minimum requirement to pass academic year is grade C (GPA of 2.00) without any F. Most of the courses in the first four semesters are common and shared with the students from other departments in the college such as basic calculus, general physics and general chemistry. In the third year of the program the students will follow their respective fields of engineering disciplines. UF Undergraduate Degree The UF undergraduate program degree is a four-year course spanned over nine semesters. In the majority of the first couple of semesters, courses are more general and shared with students from other colleges and include analytical geometry and calculus, technical writing, and physics. It is from the third semester that engineering students are taught engineeringbased courses such as Introduction to Civil Engineering which allows students to see the entire curriculum including specialty. Like UJ, Internships are not required for UF students, but it is recommended. Overall, the current civil engineering curriculum at UF leading to a bachelor of science degree consists of 131 credits made up of 53 credits of required civil engineering course work, and 15 credits of engineering electives specific to a desired track (Construction Engineering track, Geotechnical Engineering track, Hydrology & Water Resources Engineering track, General Civil Engineering track, Structural Engineering track and Transportation Engineering track). All students are required to pass the Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) Exam to complete their degree in civil engineering 1. Curriculum Comparison There is difference between the credit hour ratings at both institutions. At UF every course is designated a specific number of credit hours. The number of credit hours for a class reflects the total hours a student spends per week in class at both UF and UJ. At UJ the course includes weekly lecture course hours plus the designated weekly laboratory, practical, or studio course hours 6. Laboratory classes at UJ are always part of the activities of specific courses in either basic sciences or engineering sciences. At UF, the curriculum offers courses completely dedicated to lab work in the pre-engineering courses. Table 1 presents a list of the courses offered at UF and UJ 1, 6.

Electives can be chosen from approved lists or with the consent of track advisor. Many track courses will only be offered once a year. Conclusions The major aspect taken into account in the comparison was the duration of the programs, special courses or activities of each curriculum, the differences in the student academic load, the grading systems, the curriculum flexibility and the admission requirements. Civil engineering degree is obtained in four years at UF and five years at UJ. Both courses are similar in introducing the basic engineering knowledge to students. Both departments allow students to choose electives towards the end of their degrees to help students concentrate on their specialty. UJ utilizes a required internship during the latter semester of the course to allow students to appreciate the application of their theoretical knowledge in the real world. At UF, the Civil Engineering department will accept students to complete two summer semesters of co-op, internship or other engineering-related work. Page
